DEMON POSSESSION

by Kiersten Fay

.

Demon-PossessionBLURB:

After being enslaved on the spaceship Extarga for most of her life Analia has no memory of her life before, and has lost all knowledge of her people. Her mysterious gift and pointed ears are the only indication that she is different.

Analia is alone, and for all she knows, she’s the last of her kind. By chance Analia escapes her captors, and hides herself on the merchant ship Marada, planning to get off at the very next stop.

Unfortunately for her, there is no next stop. The crew is planning a delivery that could take months, and according to a stipulation in the newly signed contract, no one is allowed on or off the ship until the package is delivered.

When Analia is found by the  captain of the Marada, she must adapt to her new role on the ship, and try to control her newly awakened desire for the brutal and devastatingly erotic demon.

EXCERPT:

Anya watched Sebastian from the corner of her eye as he went to work cleaning away the blood. He was focused and intent on his task, but couldn’t seem to stop touching her in little ways. Softly brushing her hair, her shoulder, her hip. Was he checking her for further injuries? It seemed more intimate than that. It was almost as if he didn’t even realize he was doing it.

His tenderness with her was astonishing. While he was focused on wiping the blood from her cut, Anya allowed herself to study him closer. He seemed calm now, though his energy was still erratic.

When he had first returned, still resembling the monster, it had terrified her. He’d still been enraged, much more so, it seemed. And not for the first time, she’d thought he might hurt her.

But when his eyes had found hers, he’d visibly relaxed, instantly morphing back into the Bastian she recognized.

With a gentleness contradictory to the man standing before her, he cleaned her wound. By his soft pats and concerned looks, she knew now that he would never hurt her. She felt silly for ever thinking otherwise. He’d shown her nothing but kindness from the beginning.

“You’re not frightened of me anymore?” he asked without averting his gaze from the cut on her cheek.

He was almost completely back to normal now. His horns were returning to their original dark black, and his fangs had receded. Thinking back to his other form, she couldn’t muster the terror it had inspired in the first place. “No,” she said simply.

“So easily?”

“You make it hard to fear you, Sebastian, when you treat me the way you do.”

“And how’s that then?”

“Like you would never hurt me, no matter how angry you are, or how much you might want to.”

His golden eyes locked on hers with such intensity it stole her breath. “I would never want to hurt you.” Cupping her face, he rubbed his thumb along her unmarked cheek. “I could never hurt you. If anything ever happened to you, I fear I will be trapped on the Edge forever.” Leaning in, he lightly kissed her bruise. “I think of you constantly.” He kissed her forehead. “Always.” Then with the lightest touch, he kissed her lips.

With words so sweet, Anya couldn’t help but lean into him. This wasn’t the demanding kiss from before. This was soft, smooth, tender. This time he allowed her to explore him at her leisure. His lips were soft and warm, molded to hers, and she caressed them.

Her second real kiss ever was turning out to be the most erotic experience of her life. Sebastian was watching her with his liquid gold eyes, filled with restrained lust as he let her place soft kisses on him.

When she darted out her tongue, he dropped his hands to her hips, his body wedging between her legs. The second time she darted her tongue to lick his sweet lips, he opened, his tongue meeting hers.

From deep within him, she heard the rumblings of a satisfied groan. The mere sound stroked her own lust, and she instinctively dug her nails into his shoulders. Liquid pooled between her legs. Bastian’s grip tightened in her hips.

“Let me taste you,” he grated.

MY REVIEW:

Demon Possession truly fits into the category of sci-fi romance.  It has space travel, ships, and alien races.  The author does a good job of introducing the type of lifestyle that comes with that environment.  The real story is in the romance between Sebastian and Anya.  They definitely have chemistry from the start, but both do their best to resist it.  I love stories with that kind of push-pull and this one definitely has it.  Watching the two characters slowly get to know one another and build trust was entertaining to read.

There is a lot of back story introduced in the novel and as it progresses.  I would have liked to have seen it unfold more through showing than telling, but it isn’t to say it wasn’t fascinating to read.  Many of the characters had interesting pasts.  It just would have been more intriguing to leave some of it as a mystery that could unfold as the reader got to know them instead of too much being dumped from the beginning.  I still found this to be an easy read and at least the back stories were kept fairly brief.

You also get to learn a lot about some of the races around in this world.  I’m a big fan of demons so this was definitely a good book for me.  My only reservation is that it was sometimes hard to believe some of the characters were as old as they were.  Sebastian just felt more like a mid-thirty year old than someone well over a thousand.  Having said that, he made a great love interest and I did enjoy watching how he handled his attraction to Anya.

All in all, this is a great sci-fi romance and certainly as good if not better than some of the others I’ve read in the genre.  Whether you’re into sci-fi or even just paranormal, check this one out.  I give it four whips!
